Mrs Aisha Buhari, wife of Nigeria’s President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, has said that Nigerian women would enjoy a better deal under her husband’s tenure.
Mrs Buhari gave the assurance in an Easter Message issued in Abuja on Monday by Malam Garba Shehu, Director, Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Organisation
According to the message, the First Lady in-waiting assured Nigerian women that they would witness a better deal from May 29 when her husband would be formally inaugurated as president of Nigeria.
It said: “I wish Christian women the abundant blessings of the Easter celebration. Nigerian women are among the hardest working social groups, but have remained economically and politically marginalised.
“Under my husband’s government, honest labour and hard work would be adequately rewarded, while corruption would be fought aggressively.”
Mrs Buhari, it further said, promised that her husband’s administration would stop at nothing in order to ensure the promotion and protection of the welfare of women.
